Another move is in store for the Royal Canadian Legion’s Langley branch.
The branch will be relocating just east of the current downtown Langley City location, and will be scaling down some operations while increasing others.
“Our branch has a long, proud history of assisting veterans and their families in Langley”, said branch president Shirley Blair. “Operating as a service branch will offer us many opportunities to continue to provide services that the general public is not aware of.”
Programs to serve local veterans and Legion members will be expanded.
The annual poppy drive, about to start soon, serves a number of programs including a veterans transition program, service dogs for vets with PTSD, local residential care homes, and student bursaries.
The branch’s new office will continue to serve as a place for veterans and members to gather to have social gatherings throughout the week.
“We look forward to welcoming our veterans, members and fellow residents to our new office when we are open in mid-October,” said Blair.
